SWISS COSTUME - Costumes Suisses

Title: Costumes Suisses
Description: 18. [SWISS COSTUME]. COSTUMES SUISSES. Zurich: Weinig & Comp. n.d. (circa 1850-1880). The title and publisher's information are taken from the cover. A twenty-two panel panorama of tinted lithographs with hand coloring that show Swiss men and women wearing regional dress in landscapes or cottage interiors. 4 3/4 x 3 inches (12 x 8 cm). Embossed cloth covers with title and publisher's information gilt-stamped to upper board. The images are bright and attractive, but the panorama has some old and rather awkward repairs to the last three panels. The final panel has been partially glued to the rear pastedown and has shallow loss at the top-corner; the missing piece has adhered to the facing corner of the preceding panel. Another panel has has a vertical clear-tape repair on the plate near one edge that prevents the panorama from opening flat at that place. As is. .
